How to Do Home Repair

“Yeah, the table is a bit wobbly. But it goes with the floor.”

My forte isn’t home repair and maintenance. My wife knows that and for the most part she doesn’t complain.

I put up a shelf in the kitchen. It came out crooked even after my eyeballing it and using a scale.

I looked nervously at my wife and confessed my blunder.

She shrugged her shoulders and said, “It doesn’t matter. It goes with the rest of the house.”

I relaxed.

Then my eyes narrowed as I thought of the implication: all my home repairs are crooked.

She seemed to be reading my mind.

“I think it’s charming,” she said. “It’s us.”

I made her a hot tea.
